I’m a writer and editor with a lifelong passion for food and nutrition.
In 2007 I attended Slow Food’s University of Gastronomic Sciences / Università degli Studi di Scienze Gastronomiche in northern Italy, earning a Master’s in Food Culture and Communication. In 2014 I became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.) after studies at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.
I’ve made a living largely from corporate, technical, creative and grant writing for many years. I’ve taught classroom, one-on-one and online courses and workshops in corporate training and creative writing. My holistic nutrition practice, Go Local Nutrition, is based at Haliburton Community Organic Farm in Victoria, offering nutritional consultations and cooking classes.
I’m also a poet and writer of creative nonfiction; my books are listed here. I’ve given public readings in venues large and small, and you’ll find a small selection of my poems in print and in voice elsewhere on this website.
Please contact me if you’d like to book me for readings, writing work or a nutritional consultation. I’m currently based in Victoria, BC and hold dual citizenship that allows me to work in Europe.
